Imagine you are a child living in a little coastal village in Sweden. One wondrous day two bottlenose dolphins visit your harbour and give a splashing show. The faces of these children, and adults alike actually, inspired us so much. Thinking about meeting the gaze of the dolphins underwater earlier that day, I made a silent promise to all.
When dolphins can travel thousands of miles into unknown waters to show up for the opening of the Dolphin Swim Club, we ourselves must certainly cover the whole distance. How amazing would it be to have this experience of dolphin magic available right in your smartphone or computer? Go swimming with the dolphins wherever you are.
In the meantime, we have interviewed specialists about using our footage for research in the treatment of patients. In the fields of autism, depression, childbirth, and also post-traumatic stress disorder. The reactions are very positive, so there is a good chance that the dolphin-magic may also work in these settings. And it is also in this area that we have found additional funding.
We have just opened up a webshop where you may pre-order, and find the same products as presented on the crowdfunding site. The date of delivery will still be around the end of the year.
We have booked a boat for the beginning of December to make the footage. The owners of the boat have supported the project as well with a generous offer and we will be 7 days at a unique location to capture the life and joy of wild and free dolphins. Due to their gift we have now four extra places on board available, in two duo shared cabins. Is swimming with dolphins your dream? Now there is a special opportunity! We invite you to share this unique experience of swimming with spinners and sometimes bottlenose dolphins in the clear aqua-blue tropical waters of the Red Sea. As well as sea turtles, all kinds of colourful fish and amazing coral reefs. Apart from the film crew, there will be a snorkelling/diving guide and a marine biologist on board. And not all that unimportant a great chef who will cook all our meals! There are several decks on board, so there is always space available to sit and relax after spending hours with the dolphins or take a mid-day rest.
Apart from that you will probably have the greatest time ever, you will also help us to realize the footage for the Dolphin Swim Club. We are so much looking forward to starting the next chapter of this project, which has been so full of magic so far.
A big thank you to everyone for all your support! I leave here with this very warm feeling of gratitude.
